Coral reef fisheries support the livelihoods and wellbeing of millions of people in the Global South. Since 2014, I have coordinated WCS’s global coral reef monitoring to evaluate the social and ecological outcomes of tropical coastal management.
Tropical reef-building corals are the backbone of the entire coral reef ecosystem. My research investigates how coral communities function and how to safeguard corals in a changing climate.
MERMAID is the first online-offline data platform to collect, share and analyze coral reef monitoring information: www.datamermaid.org
